Nothing you really can do, just put it out of it's misery.

Are you sure it's broken? Do a search here for a condition called "wry neck" - there is lots of information and I think it could be confused with a broken neck.

If her neck is broken then put her down.  She cannot be saved.  If she has wry neck then she can possibly be saved.  Are you sure her neck is broken?

All I want in this point of the game is to move the serama forward, it is not complicated, I do it for the breed not for my self!!

i'd do some reading before you make a decision. My Silkie with Wry neck had it so bad he could not move his neck from between his feet. He had to drag his head around. A week and a half later, with treatment, he is 100% normal.
